This one-credit mini-course is designed to complement the RC’s series of five Thursday night programs that will include guest speakers, theater, and a range of panels and presentations about the background and continuing significance of Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The Thursday program topics include:

  • --What can a children’s book teach us about what makes life worth living?
  • --How does Oz reflect its author’s involvement with the social issues of his day?
  • --Where does Oz fit within children’s literature more generally?
  • --What has been the particular significance of Oz for the LGBT community?
  • --Performance: selected scenes from dramatic adaptations of Oz and Wicked.

    Requirements include attending the five Thursday night programs, completing short readings and brief (one-page) written assignments for each, and participating in a small group discussion following the larger program. Students in the mini-course will have the opportunity to engage some of the invited speakers in a smaller group format. This course is designed to complement the LSA theme semester, “What Makes Live Worth Living.”
